Aperture and the Photography Program in the School of Art, Media, and Technology at Parsons The New School for Design present the latest installment of the 2011 Parsons Lecture Series with Sara VanDerBeek. Featured in the most recent issue of Aperture magazine, VanDerBeek’s quiet semi-abstract photographs are based predominately on sculptural forms created by the artist. Some works depict three-dimensional still-life assemblages that she builds in her studio. Others show architectural details, like the close-ups of decaying windows and foundations she encountered on a trip to New Orleans. And many of the most poignant found their source in Ms. VanDerBeeks’ childhood home in Baltimore.

Sara VanDerBeek received her BFA from Cooper Union. VanDerBeek was featured in MoMA’s New Photography exhibition in 2009, Greater New York at PS1 in 2008 and had her first solo museum exhibition, To Think of Time, at New York’s Whitney Museum of American Art in 2010. Another show will open at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, in 2011. She currently lives and works in New York City and is represented by Metro Pictures, New York.
